Today after some feedback from the lovely people on here I decided to alter my route, so that instead of just running round the park I ventured out onto pavement. It probably seems silly to seasoned runners but I'd kind of built it up my head that it would be harder.
I started off for the warm up and first interval in the park I was then at a point where I was by a gate and able to venture out... I was surprised that I was actually finding it easier than on grass. The knees and ankles didn't seem to object either, which I thought might happen. I ended up completing the middle 4 intervals on the road, mostly because I missed the turning to go back to the road where the park entrance is. Finally I went back into the park for the last run and the cool down walk.
So all in all very happy with today. I was struggling a little on the last run but I was determined not to stop until Laura called time. Vey glad I managed it. Feeling great, although very hungry this afternoon. I've been filling up on fruit and chicken. One of the things I am finding is that my motivation to eat health is higher than it's been in a long time since I've started this. Long may it continue x Roll on Friday
